A riff on the 1983 classic The Big Chill, this ensemble drama's reunion of old friends differs because Alex's suicide fails this time. It's also, of course, filtered through a very different cultural landscape, with characters born at about the time the earlier film was released. This is a strikingly warm exploration of friendship, with light comedy and very dark emotions along the way. And even if it sometimes feels a little sloppy about its big themes, it has a lot to say.
After Alex (Jason Ritter) attempts suicide, his best pal Ben (Nate Parker) calls the old gang and asks them to come to Upstate New York and offer some support. Ben brings his girlfriend Siri (Maggie Grace), who's also part of the group. But they're grappling with some big issues in their relationship, since he's a blocked writer and she has just had a job offer in Los Angeles. The cynical Josh (Max Greenfield) arrives at the same time as the charmer Sarah (Aubrey Plaza), and they can barely conceal the waves of loathing and lust between them. Finally, Isaac (Max Minghella) brings his younger girlfriend Kate (Jane Levy). As these people reconnect, the awkwardness is made even more intense by the question of how they can help Alex.
It's intriguing to see a movie made about 30-ish characters by 28-year-old Jesse Zwick, son of filmmaker Edward, who made the seminal TV series Thirtysomething. The film refreshingly avoids stereotypes, populating scenes with realistic people who are still hung up on the same issues they faced while in university, including quite a lot of soapy "he likes her but she likes him" melodrama. But as the weekend progresses, the thoughtful conversations lead to revelations and confessions, spurred on by some pot-smoking, game-playing, dancing and noisy sex. All of which gives the actors plenty to play with.

'Evil Dead' director Fede Alvarez has revealed he exposed stars Jane Levy and Shiloh Fernandez to ''real danger'' to capture natural responses in the horror flick.
'Evil Dead' star Jane Levy was exposed to ''real danger'' while shooting the film.
Director Fede Alvarez - who helmed the recent reboot of Sam Raimi's classic horror flick - has revealed he wanted to capture the actress' real fear in the movie and says many of the scenes were incredibly challenging for the leading lady.
He explained: ''There was a lot [of tough scenes for Jane]. Every scene was unique and felt real, and we're seeing Jane's response. We didn't use CGI. Jane was exposed to real things and real dangers.

Jane Levy was divorced her husband, her husband that no one knew existed.
Suburgatory and Evil Dead actress Jane Levy has filed for divorce form her husband Jaime Freitas after 7 months together, TMZ have reported. The news of the divorce, and the marriage for that matter, may come as a surprise to many as the marriage was only known about by the two until their divorce was announced.
The actress regularly plays young or teenage girls on screen, but she is actually 23-years-old and got married to her actor former-husband in March 2011. The pair only stuck together for 7 months and have kept their union under wraps until now, however their busy schedules have prevented the two from actually filing for divorce, until now.

Remaking an iconic classic is dangerous business, even if the original filmmakers are on board as producers, but at least Uruguayan writer-director Alvarez has a few clever ideas up his sleeve. And a willingness to go gleefully over-the-top with the grisliness. But aside from a few gimmicky jolts, the film is never actually scary.
There are essentially only five characters in the story, which gives the actors a chance to find entertaining details along the way. Mia (Levy) is a drug addict whose three best friends (Lucas, Pucci and Blackmore) take her to her family's creaky old cabin in the woods to go cold turkey. They're joined by Mia's aloof brother David (Fernandez). But none of them know that locals have used the basement for a sinister ritual, and they left a creepy book behind that supposedly has the power to summon a vicious demon who wants to possess them all. So is Mia's freaky behaviour because of her withdrawal, or has something evil got hold of her?
This twist is rather clever, as it adds a level of mordant wit to the film, giving texture to the relationships between these five young people who we fully expect will begin to die horribly nasty deaths one by one. Indeed, what follows is an escalating series of blood-soaked set-pieces involving dismemberment and death at the sharp edge of any implement on hand.

Will horror fans be impressed by this re-imagining?
Evil Dead remains one of the most-loved franchises in horror film history. Written and directed by Sam Raimi, and starring Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, the 1981 version is well and truly a cult classic, so can the 2013 remake recapture that magic?
Sadly not; according to most reviewers, Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead is nothing but an expensive rehash, without the romanticism of Raimi’s budget original. “Despite much old-school splatter, it's seldom frightening and oddly unfunny,” say Time Out, while The Washington Post describe it as “A gore fest that's just effective enough to whet fans' appetite for a sequel, even as it kills everyone else's appetite for dinner.” Vulture post the question: “Five years from now, will you want to watch this bloody $14 million extravaganza or Raimi's shoestring original, which was Amateur Hour elevated to pop art?” adding, “Evil Dead just bleeds money.” One thing it does retain from the original is the overt gore, which is noted by The Chicago Reader. “There isn't much to do here except turn the gore up to 11; if you've ever wondered what it would be like to jam a chainsaw into someone's mouth (and who hasn't?), this will give you a good working idea.”

Actress Jane Levy couldn't wait to return to her U.S. sitcom Suburgatory after shooting the Evil Dead horror remake because working with blood and gore all day was "awful".
The star was thrilled when she landed the lead role in Fede Alvarez's revival of the 1981 cult classic, but the 23 year old's excitement quickly faded when she saw what the director had in store for her character.
Praising his leading lady during an interview with Nylon magazine, Alvarez says, "We put a big pipe down her throat to make her puke tons of blood in someone's face; we threw her in a freezing cold swamp in the middle of winter, and a lot more stuff that I'm not going to say because I don't want to spoil the movie... Nobody could take it like she did... She left her heart, body, mind, and blood on the set floor, and that translated into an amazingly honest and fearless performance."

When Mia, her brother and three friends vacate to an isolated cabin in the woods, they unwittingly discover a book labelled 'Leave This Book Alone' tightly bound up. It turns out to be a Book of the Dead which one of them reads a part of and subsequently rouses some dark and murderous demons intent on possessing the group and leading them to their doom. It doesn't take the spirit long to take over the youngsters as they fight in vain to survive until only one of them is left to desperately find an escape.
The evil returns in this exciting remake of the 1981 cult horror 'The Evil Dead'. It is directed and written by Fede Alvarez in his debut feature length film with screenplay contributions from Diablo Cody ('Juno', 'Jennifer's Body') and Rodo Sayagues Mendez in his first feature. Production credits include the one and only Sam Raimi himself who created the original movie, along with the original main star and executive producer Bruce Campbell. 'Evil Dead' the 2013 edition is set to be even more spine-chilling than ever as the fourth instalment of the Evil Dead franchise. It is scheduled for release in the UK on April 19th 2013.
Director: Fede Alvarez

Sam Raimi and his production team have gone in hard with the trailer for the Evil Dead remake.
Branded for mature audiences only, there are moments in this teaser that are so gory, they leave you wondering what hell they’ve put in the rest of the movie. This remake of Raimi’s classic 1981 movie starring Bruce Campbell was initially met with a degree of pessimism from horror purists but he’s back on board, with Sam Raimi and indie movie darling Diablo Cody both claiming a writing credit for the remake and with Fede Alvarez in the director’s seat, they appear to have taken no prisoners with this resurrection and the trailer alone is sure to silence the cynics.
2013’s Evil Dead stars Jane Levy as Mia. Shiloh Fernadez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore all join her onscreen, as does Bruce Campbell himself, albeit briefly. Campbell, of course, is a huge part of the success of the original 1980s movies, so it’s a relief to see him on production duties here as well.
